Yesterday we run round 2 of our summer national series here in Finland, for me the second race with the 417 V5. The Ylistaro track is a very small and tight track and not a favourite one by any means, the track is however quite close to home and in the end the race turned out ok with the grip coming up nicely during the race.
Below the setup I used. A few changes for the slow stop-start circuit to make the car a bit more stable. The setup was no way perfect but decent. As the grip came up a lot I’m sure more speed could have been found with some changes as it was now setup to be too secure.
Below a Picture of the very slow layout.
42253 Aluminum Lower Deck Set – TRF201 XR (Long Wheelbase)
This new lower deck for the TRF201 off-road racing buggy is result of years of dedicated testing by the TRF team. The TRF201 conversion set is designed with the goal of winning the 2014 IFMAR off-road championships. The new aluminum lower deck makes the TRF201 chassis into a long wheelbase, narrower chassis setup, which reduces contact with the racing surface. Drivers can expect their TRF201 and DN-01 model to become even more competitive in at their local track.
Wheelbase is extended by 11mm to provide increased stability.
Aluminum lower deck has hard anodized coating to provide excellent durability.
Resin side guards add to the toughness of the chassis.
Compatible with rectangular-shaped and separate-type battery packs. Battery position can be changed depending upon the type employed.
